As we long suspected, the United States of America long ago did away with any pretense that pays anything other than lip service to the first amendment. Contrary to the intensions of the founding fathers, Americans are now permitted to speak freely of that which they are permitted to speak.
Speech, however, which falls outside the parameters of what is permitted can result in the full force of the law descending upon a the speaker. 19 year old Jeremiah Munsen has been sentenced to four months in prison for the crime of driving past a group of marchers with a few makeshift nooses hanging from the back of his pick up truck.
Given that those marching in support of the murderous young thugs collectively known as the Jennas 6 have created massive lie on the back of a few nooses, what better answer to them than to use the symbol of their dishonesty against them. Young Mr Munsen should be applauded for the cleverness of his commentary and use of free expression, however, it was his bad luck that he lives in America, the land of the "free to say the right thing
In America you can shoot a burglar dead with impunity, but God help you if you offend him or mention his race.
Jeremiah Munsen is paying the price for not saying what he is supposed to say, for not believing what he is supposed to believe, and questioned a lie which he was not supposed to question.
He is another victim of the lie which now has a vice like grip on the heart and testicles of the land we call the last remaining superpower, where the much vaunted constitution protects only those who embrace the new realities, where truth is only true if it complies with the new myths and other truths which do not comply become hate crimes.
In Jena Louisiana six black youths beat a white boy unconscious, and yet in the new reality, which created a whole new new story about "white trees" which never existed, and half truths about nooses, they, not the beaten white boy are viewed as the victims. For questioning this madness Jeremiah Munsen had to be punished.
Jeremiah Munsen - punished for the crime of free expression in America
It is to America's shame that so few shouted "NO"
